The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.272 billion Delfics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfingrad. The average income tax rate is 24%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The capital of New Delfos has burned to the ground and caused riots throughout the country, the government is reining in public spending, children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is, and the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Delfos's national animal is the Big Red Tomato, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the tomato.

New Delfos is ranked 5th in Taijitu and 2,789th in the world for Best Weather, with 272 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
